ACOSTA DENIED: White House ‘Suspends’ Jim Acosta’s Press Pass ‘Until Further Notice’

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.08.18

CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his press pass “suspended” Wednesday after a fiery exchange with President Trump during a post-midterm briefing, reports Fox News.

“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH,” Acosta tweeted Wednesday. “Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the move in a written statement, saying his credentials were revoked after “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern,” adding the behavior was “absolutely unacceptable.”

“This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history,” she added.

CNN SNOWFLAKE: Jim Acosta WHINES White House ‘DROWNING OUT’ His Voice

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta publicly bemoaned his treatment by White House officials on social media Tuesday, complaining that press aides “shouted in his face” and that it was behavior one “would see in a different country.”

The fierce opponent of President Trump vented his frustrations on twitter this week, whining that he “has never encountered” this sort of resistance from White House officials and that it “certainly” not something one would see in the United States.

“As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before… What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH. Certainly not in the U.S.,” Acosta tweeted.

The CNN correspondent routinely feuds with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other Trump officials –including the President himself. Last week, Huckabee Sanders mocked Acosta to his face during a daily press briefing, saying the reporter’s numbers “would be higher” if President Trump watched CNN.
